Currently riding a 10-game point streak with nine victories, the Philadelphia Flyers (6th in Metropolitan Division) are playing host to the Pittsburgh Penguins (4th in Metropolitan), who have lost four outings in a row…

Penguins Extend Skid

The Pittsburgh Penguins (28-20-7) extended their losing skid to four outings (0-3-1) after being edged with a count of 5-4 by the Tampa Bay Lightning at Amalie Arena on Saturday. Garrett Wilson (1 goal, 6 points this year), Jared McCann (10 goals, 20 points), Bryan Rust (15 goals, 28 points) and Tanner Pearson (9 goals, 15 points) all tallied for the Pens, who have managed to win just three of their past 11 contests (3-7-1) following an eight-game winning run prior. They are 4th in the Metropolitan Division with 63 points from 55 fixtures, currently holding the 2nd Wild Card of the Eastern Conference.

Goalie Casey DeSmith made 29 saves against the Bolts and has now gone 13-10-5 for the season with a 2.78 GAA and a .916 save percentage. He is 0-1-0 versus Philadelphia after a previous meeting with a 3.06 GAA and a .880 save percentage, while Matt Murray (15-9-1 on the year with a 2.97 GAA and a .909 save percentage), who could make his return from an upper-body injury, has posted a 3-2-0 career total against the Flyers with a 3.00 GAA and a .912 save percentage. The Penguins are 6th in most goals scored per game (3.42), 12th in most goals allowed on average (3.09), 7th in power play (23.5%) and 9th in penalty kill (82.0%).

Flyers Stretch Out Streak

The current point streak of the Philadelphia Flyers (25-23-7) stretched out to 10 consecutive games (9-0-1) after the team banked a 6-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks at Wells Fargo Center on Saturday. Six different players scored, with Sean Couturier (23 goals, 48 points this year) registering a team-high three points (1 goal, 2 assists), as the Flyers were already leading 4-0 after the first 20 minutes, adding two more strikes in the final third. They are 6th in the Metropolitan Division with 57 points from 55 fixtures, trailing the playoff crowd of the Eastern Conference by six points.

Rookie Carter Hart stopped 30 shots for his eighth straight triumph to tie Jocelyn Thibault’s NHL record for the longest win streak by a goalie under 21. Hart is 11-5-1 for the current campaign with a 2.45 GAA and a .926 save percentage, and is yet to win against the Metropolitan Division, going 0-3-0 with a 4.37 GAA and a .818 save percentage. The Flyers, meanwhile, are netting the 13th lowest amount of goals per game (2.89), while conceding the 8th highest bulk defensively (3.29). They are 24th in power play (16.5%) and 4th from the bottom in penalty kill (76.2).

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The visiting team has gone on to win the very last six meetings between the pair, with the Penguins triumphing on their last five visits to Philadelphia. Be cautious, though, of Pittsburgh’s declining form, which has seen the team record just three victories in its last 11 contests. The Pens have dropped four straight road games, four consecutive outings against the Eastern Conference and five of their past seven Mondays, while the Flyers, boosted by a top-notch showing courtesy of rookie goalie Carter Hart, are riding a 10-game point streak and have six straight wins versus sides with a winning record. May that continue!

Prediction: Philadelphia Flyers

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

This series has excelled in goals lately, with six of the past 12 overall contests raking in at least seven strikes, and five of the remaining six delivering precisely six snipes. Still, do bank on the Under in this one, as the Flyers have already gone below the total in five of their last six contests following a win, while 10 of the past 13 games of the Penguins versus opponents from the Metropolitan Division have witnessed no more than six snipes netted.

Prediction: Under 6.5
